Words cannot possibly describe the anguish I feel for this mother. Nine year old Christina-Taylor Green was the youngest victim and life claimed in the senseless Arizona shooting this weekend. Her mother consented to an interview on FOX with Gretchen Carlson that leaves Carlson in tears. As a mother myself of a young boy, less than a year older than Christina-Taylor, I can’t even begin to imagine the heartache and grief that this mother is going through. My admiration soars for the strength of this woman as she speaks about the tragedy, even though you can hear the indescribable pain of her crushed heart come right through her voice as she describes her little girl.
Gretchen Carlson conducted such a compassionate interview and as a mother you can tell that she knows that the death of a child is every woman’s greatest nightmare. Our constant prayers for peace and comfort are with this family.
